Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    While precut bagged broccoli florets make an easy shortcut, you can also cut your own. One large head of broccoli will provide plenty of florets for this recipe.
  • tip 2
    We used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts in this Instant Pot® cheesy chicken and rice recipe so that the chicken is still tender by the time the rice is cooked through.
  • tip 3
    Swap the cheddar cheese in this recipe for your family’s favorite easy-to-melt cheese: Swiss, Colby-Jack or provolone are all great options.
  • tip 4
    Have you fallen in love with your multi-cooker? Try this Instant Pot® Chicken and Dumplings for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
